Designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), enterprise clients and system integrators, the VeloDrive optimizes high-performance computing and storage applications, providing unparalleled versatility and simplified integration. The VeloDrive can be run in either hardware or software RAID mode and can be deployed in half-height or full-height system requirements. When compared with competing PCIe flash-based solutions, the highly-efficient VeloDrive has a minimal impact on system resources including CPU utilization and the system’s DRAM footprint. Eliminating the SATA/SAS bottleneck, the PCIe-based VeloDrive has the ability to deliver transfer speeds of up to 1GB/s and 130,000 4KB random write IOPS, and features SandForce SF-1565 SSD processors for enhanced reliability and power loss data protection. The VeloDrive utilizes MLC NAND flash and will be available in 300GB, 600GB, and 1.2TB configurations.
Pros: Fast, does not take up a drive bay and has no moving parts. Plug it in, add the drive in the OS. May just show up depending on the OS. And you are done. All in all. It took me about 10 min to have this in the server and being used.
Other Thoughts: We use these for processes that must be done quickly and have a ton of Disk IO. You can spend 1000s of hours getting the code to run faster and or use more Ram or you can shave your IO times by magnitudes just buy using one of these. The cost becomes a no brain'r once you understand that.
